addias Officially Unveils J Wall 1

adidas has officially unveiled the upcoming J Wall 1.


To compliment John’s quick, aggressive style of play, the J Wall 1 midsole features full length adiprene+

cushioning for enhanced responsiveness, comfort and superior heel to toe transition. Wall’s equipped

for all his cross-overs with a full length lateral FITFRAME which allows for a more controlled surface for

Wall to plant against during explosive cuts. A unique air mesh textile upper offers supreme comfort and

breathability and is finished with rip-stop overlays for enhanced durability.


We haven’t had an adidas basketball shoe feature full length adiPrene in a long time, and while adiPrene isn’t Boost… it’s better than standard EVA. This also will help keep Wall’s signature model reasonably priced at $115.


“We designed and engineered every aspect of this shoe to compliment John’s quick style of play on the

court,” said Robbie Fuller, Global Design Director, adidas Basketball. “Our close collaboration with John

allowed us to deliver a shoe that will help him improve performance while telling his unique, personal story

through the John Wall logo and details throughout the shoe.”

In addition to his signature shoe, there will be an apparel collection for on & off-court use with prices ranging from $25-$60. Expect the adidas J Wall 1 to become available on October 31st for $115 at adidas.com & FootLocker.com in both colorways shown, with more colorways to follow.

  1. This could actually be a pretty nice shoe. I’m glad adidas has scrapped Eva, I remember adiprene in some of the old bounce commander models, and it felt great.

  2. I think at this price point this will be a real nice shoe. While you never know with traction until you get on the court, everything else about the shoe makes me think it should be a solid performer. Aesthetically I like the look of the shoe as well. Don’t love it, but def like it a lot. If and when these come down below $100, if they perform, they could be a steal.

    1. Yes, but a lot of shoes made of cloth parts show seams now. The Jordans also have that seam and some other models that I’ve seen lately. Some shoes in various colors are able to hide it better due to the blending but yea, that is what you’re seeing.

      1. Yeah…it looks like a butt crack on the grey pair lol. They should try designing the shoes so the seam is hidden under a stripe or something…

  3. They look great. In a Bullets cw gotta ignite flames.
    No boost is a set back but at least the price is right.
    If they perform and go under the radar/price is cut down would be a steal.

    J.Wall and R.Rubio are the 2 most underrated PGs in the game. Adidas hit a home run with both signings.

  4. Does anyone think there will be a good amount of court feel? Just wondering. But JW is my favorite player so any colorway is a must cop

  5. I can see a potential problem. If that mesh is on the soft/flimsy side, and that toe rand is extra think, there might be some possible toe-jamming issues. Other than that, I’m hyped for these!

  6. I have seen many potential adidas tennis line shoes that can be use for hoop..since both sport have similarities in footwork..there are tons of adidas tennis shoes that featured low-cut, full-length adiprene, full herringbone adiwear outsole, n tech-fit..have anyone try these?

      1. i don’t actually remembered which model it is, but i guess you can take a look at Adidas Adipower Barricade 8+ and Adidas Climacool Adizero Feather 3

  7. I just realized that when you put both shoes together, you get a silhouette of the United States of America. Hence the “East Coast”/”West Coast” on the lateral sides of each shoe.
